The Wieliczka Salt Mine illustrates the historic stages of the development of mining techniques in Europe, from the 13th to the 20th centuries. Wieliczka Saltworks Castle, used for the management of the property, dates from the medieval period and has been rebuilt several times in the course of its history.
